Airport bosses find out today if plans to increase passenger numbers at Stansted will be approved.

They want to raise the current cap of 35 million passengers a year to 43 million.

It would mean the airport could handle 66% more passengers.

Uttlesford District Council will decide whether they can do so today.

But not everyone is convinced with anti-expansion campaigners raising concerns about carbon emissions and noise.
